Horsham is an ancient market town in Sussex, 12 miles from Dorking.
In spite of its age, it has a modern, bustling town centre.
Carfax, in the centre, is the town square, and boasts a Victorian bandstand. The Town Hall was built in the 17th century.
In the 16th century Causeway House is located the Horsham Musuem.
The Causeway is a quiet, tree - lined street, leading to St. Mary`s Church, partly 12th century and with a shingled spire that rises to 175 feet.
The headquarters of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) are in Horsham.
Christ`s Hospital School is just outside the town, having moved from London in 1902. The original school, near Newgate on the site of the Greyfriars, was founded by Edward VI in 1552.
Horsham is the birthplace of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley; and the author Hammond Innes.
Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Horsham for groups.
